About us

The designation covers authors, journalists, composers, and illustrators, as well as publishing houses and other publishers. We enter into agreements in pursuance of the Danish Copyright Act, so that our customers can legally copy excerpts for teaching and business purposes.

We are a non-profit Reproduction Rights Organization (RRO) and the administrative costs are therefore kept as low as possible.The remuneration collected, with the deduction of administrative costs, is remitted once a year. Payment is made directly to those rightsholders whose works were copied.

Copydan Writing grants blanket licences under the extented collective licensing system (ECL). Through our licensing agreements we authorize the reprographic reproduction of excerpts from copyright protected textual works. Licensees are primary and secondary schools, universities and other institutes of higher education, businesses and non-profit organisations, local and central government, church municipalities and other public bodies
